Seems like everything we think we know about this case completely changes from day to day!
Yesterday, police were saying that Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen's murder was a random act of violence, but now criminologists are saying that the killing seems like a professional hit to them.
Here's what former California prosecutor Robin Sax had to say about the case:
"It just doesn't seem believable. Chasen had three perfect shots to the chest, which sounds like the work of a professional. The notion of Smith coming into $10,000 didn't just come from nowhere, and the fact that the bullet cases weren't found indicates that this person knew what they were doing and it was hardly random."
Here's what L.A. criminal defense attorney Angelyn Gates had to say about the situation:
"In theory, there could be, and should be, residue on the bicycle, which would be a huge indicator. Unless he was smart enough to think his bike has residue on it and he took a scrub brush and washed it down, they should be able to find some residue on the bike."
And more from Gates:
"I don't know why in the initial reports they were saying it couldn't be someone from the streets or the sidewalk because now they're saying completely the opposite. [Smith on a bike] doesn't make a lot of sense because nobody from the original reports said anything about a guy on a bike and it's hard to get away on a bike fast."
Guess we'll see what revelations come up next! At least they're getting CLOSER to figuring it out.
